Publisher's Summary

Murder, mystery, and a chocolate love potion...  

Caitlyn is looking forward to Midsummer's Eve in the tiny English village of Tillyhenge. Celebrating the summer solstice can be fun - especially when your grandmother is a witch with an enchanted chocolate shop! But when a teenage girl is murdered and a priceless love potion goes missing, Caitlyn and her cousins are plunged into a puzzling mystery. 

Is the girl's death connected to the midnight bonfires at the ancient stone circle? What about the two strangers who recently arrived in the village? With her naughty black kitten and toothless old vampire uncle (not to mention handsome British aristocrat, Lord James Fitzroy!) all lending a helping hand, Caitlyn sets out to do some magical sleuthing. 

But Midsummer's Eve is fast approaching and spells are going disastrously wrong... can Caitlyn use her newfound witch powers to find the killer - and maybe even mend a broken heart?

Chocolate Magic plus

H.Y. Hanna sets a number of her cozy mysteries in the English countryside, which brings a sense of nostalgic comfort to me, having grown up reading about murder in these settings. Her books, however, bring a modern sense of whimsy and familiar young adult dilemmas into the world she creates. The Bewitched by Chocolate books, voiced perfectly by Pearl Hewitt, are both cozy mysteries and fantasy romance, with an added a unique twist of the idea of chocolate magic.

Witch Summer Night's Cream, as the title suggests, uses the notion that Shakespeare's tale of bewitchment has a basis in fact, which lures characters seeking the referenced potion, each for his own individual desire. This provides numerous possibilities for nefarious motives, which keeps the story moving. The real stars of this book, however, are the quirky characters and a generous dose of humor. It's an enchanting, lighthearted listen.

Great summer or winter read

I really enjoyed this story. Like all H.Y Hanna books they are a funny easy read with great characters that become like old friends the more you get into the series.
This time there is a lot more spell casting and mishaps to add to the mystery of the murder. So much so that some of the villagers are getting in on the act and casting spells.
A body of a young girl is found behind the widow Mags chocolate shop and Caitlyn fears her young cousin might be involved and then when it turns an usual plant extract is missing and only a witch can get it she has no choice but to help the police.
Pearl Hewitt is for me the voice of Caitlyn and her friends and I hope she continues to do so as she does such a great job.

Fun twist on Shakespeare 's Midsummer night's drea

This is such an enchanting series! Hy Hanna does an incredible job creating characters and a world you find yourself wanting to return to over and over again.
This story to finds Caitlyn learning about the widow Mag' s chocolate sauce that has everyone heads over heels in love with. As well as a quirky historian who believes Tillyhenge is the location in Shakespeare's play. Caitlyn sees another bonfire on the hill and rushes out to investigate only to find the body of a girl from town. You are keapt guessing on the identity of the murderer and will be surprised as to who it actually is. The dashing Lord Fitzroy and Caitlyn's sassy cousin,Pomona are also featured.
This series just keeps getting better and I'm excited for the next book and getting more information about Caitlyn 's mysterious parentage.

good mystery

H. Y Hanna has done it again in this this third book of Bewitched by Chocolate. It's a good mystery that's hard to put it down. I listen on audio at night and in the car on go.

Another entertaining installment

Evie annoyed the hell out of me, but I'll forgive her for being a moron because she's a teenager. Still, she's an idiot.

And then there was the end...where I clapped my hands and crowed. I won't spoil it by giving any details. It's wonderful. Read it!

Not A Bad Series

Aside from the somewhat predictable ending, I enjoyed this one. I usually listen while I'm either driving or working in the kitchen. One thing though; the character Pomona is getting more and more irritating. If not for her utter cluelessness, then for the gag-worthy attempt of the English narrator trying to put on a Southern California valley girl accent. As a REAL Southern California valley girl, please stop.

A great mystery comes about when a teenager is killed and Caitlyn tries to protect her young cousin and someone wants to get her grandmother ‘s chocolate sauce recipe. All this with the summer solstice and a missing love potion. Just another day in Tillyhenge!
